Captain Marvel is an unremarkable, passable time killer...[Brie] Larson's performance is wooden...while the film's big action scenes are so lacking in imagination the screen often looks as though it's being continually doused in technicolour vomit.

Another star is glowing in the Marvel Universe.
March 15, 2019
The MCU introduces a bright, brilliant light to their universe. Captain Marvel is a complete triumph, with wit, spectacle and a sense of wonder which gives the MCU's future a compelling trajectory.

Larson shines, as she's made the independently strong character her own -- serving as a role model to all young girls worldwide -- however, the scenes between her and a younger eyepatch-less Fury are my favorite.

By setting Captain Marvel in the 90s, the filmmakers did a disservice to the importance Captain Marvel can play in the larger MCU and instead gave us a forgettable origin movie-lite.

Larson's energy makes Captain Marvel, whether she's pummeling villains with her self-satisfied smirk or radiating light in space like a blazing spectre.
March 14, 2019
Anyone who saw Larson's finely wrought work in The United States of Tara knows she is equally adept at drama and comedy and Carol Danvers is allowed both, a rarity in this universe.

It's damn fun to see Larson as a hero coming into her own, complete with 90s staples that includes a great soundtrack and references to Blockbuster, but it's hard to get truly invested since we know so little about Carol.

This prequel has a sturdy gaze, forward.

It was lacking, a bit flat, and I'm honestly concerned about how she will enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe...it's so concerned with being a feminist film that it forgets how to be a superhero movie.

Captain Marvel could have floundered under the storytelling load it was asked to shoulder, but instead manages to (mostly) soar...a worthy choice as Phase 3's penultimate offering.
March 14, 2019
A fun throwback with some nice work from Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as a great way to get audiences jazzed up for next month's big Avenger finale.
March 14, 2019
The screenplay would rather see Larson be stoic than human. She has a movie stars squint and a charisma that melts the screen, but the character, despite amiable virtue, isn't particularly relatable... there's nothing super about her.

Captain Marvel is a film you should be proud to let your children watch. It will inspire them to understand there should be no limits on what women can achieve
March 13, 2019
Larson's comedy chemistry with Jackson makes for good '90s-style buddy action.
March 13, 2019
Despite some starchy Louisiana heartland sequences, this is an effective fantasy of power used with grace and without arrogance.
March 13, 2019
While Captain Marvel does very little in terms of personal growth, she does represent a certain female fearlessness that is wonderful to experience.
March 13, 2019
An almost impenetrable slog of pulp sci-fi notions of intergalactic wars and an amnesiac supersoldier, expressed without a modicum of camp or passion.
March 13, 2019
'Captain Marvel' flies onto the screen with adventure and female empowerment.
March 13, 2019
Oh Captain, my Captain. Brie Larson brings humanity and depth to a role that could have been a typical super hero origin story but instead feels like Marvel is finding new ways to tell super stories.
